You Can Buy Bob Hope Paraphernalia This Weekend In North Hollywood
This Sunday a church in North Hollywood is hosting a sale of items that belonged to the late Bob Hope and his wife Dolores Hope.Bob Hope died in 2003, but his wife died in 2011 at age 102, and since then, the couple's daughter Linda Hope has been processing everything they left behind and prepping their Toluca Lake home to go on the market. She laughed, telling the Los Angeles Daily News, "I never knew people could accumulate so much stuff."
Some of the items will be auctioned off through Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills later this year, but some of it will go up for sale at St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood, where Dolores, a devout Catholic, was a member for 70 years. The proceeds will go to St. Charles Holy Family Service Center, which offers food and clothing to needy residents in the Valley.
You'll be able to find a lot of the items from the Hope homestead: antiques, paintings, furniture, books, holiday decorations, silver, linens, pillows, religious items and knick knacks. There will also be memorabilia from Hope's career. The items are priced starting at $10, and the sale is cash-only. (It's free to look, though!)
St. Charles Borromeo Church is located at 10834 Moorpark St. in North Hollywood. The sale is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, May 5 from 9 am to 4 pm.
